Bureau of Labor Statistics Publishes Study on Impact of Recession on Disabled

The Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) published a study entitled, "The impact of the 2007–09 recession on workers with disabilities" in its Monthly Labor Review Online. According to the abstract:

New data available from the Current Population Survey (CPS) indicate that
between October 2008 and June 2010, job losses among workers with disabilities
far exceeded those of workers without disabilities; this labor market volatility
resulted in the proportion of employed U.S. workers identified as having
disabilities declining by 9 percent.
